About this title

Synopsis:

This new textbook seeks to promote a deep yet accessible understanding of mesoscale-convective processes in the atmosphere. Mesoscale-convective processes are commonly manifested in the form of thunderstorms, which are fast evolving, inherently hazardous, and can assume a broad range of sizes and severity. Modern explanations of the convective-storm dynamics, and of the related development of tornadoes, damaging 'straight-line' winds and heavy rainfall, are provided. Students and weather professionals will benefit especially from unique chapters devoted to observations and measurements of mesoscale phenomena, mesoscale prediction and predictability, and dynamical feedbacks between mesoscale-convective processes and larger-scale motions.

Review:

'... the initial goal of the book, a study of a family of extremely complex phenomena of foremost interest in the field of atmospheric fluid mechanics, is successfully achieved.' Jose Miguel Pacheco Castelao, Mathematical Reviews

'There is ... a series of online supplemental resources available for this book that could prove to be very helpful to instructors [of] mesoscale meteorology courses ... presents a thorough, clear picture of the theoretical underpinnings of mesoscale processes along with recent research advances ... best suited for graduate students and researchers, although much of the material should be accessible to advanced undergraduate student[s] as well. It would likely work best as a text for introductory graduate-level courses in mesoscale meteorology, and I recommend it for use in that setting ...' Russ S. Schumacher, Eos, Transactions, American Geophysical Union

'In this book Robert J. Trapp has put together a great amount of knowledge along with very interesting material. The word that best describes it is 'useful' ... there is a good balance in the use of historical and current research, citing books and papers published recently and decades ago. Moreover, there are many quotes to back up the contents but at the same time the reader does not need to check the references continuously. Also most of the equations are derived and explained step by step ... Therefore, this book is highly recommendable. I think that it can be useful for a wide variety of readers: for students at several levels, teachers, as a basic text for the shelves of researchers.' Juan Añel, Contemporary Physics
